A: Eliminating breeding sites around your home are always the first step. Removing stagnant/standing water such as bird feeders, buckets, or any container that can hold water will help for mosquitoes. Keeping your yard well-manicured and trimmed will help reduce both mosquitoes and tick breeding sites. Removal of leaf litter and storing firewood away from the home will help to reduce tick populations as well. Protecting yourself with repellents while outdoors is also recommended along with wearing long sleeves and pants whenever entering wooded areas. Repellents containing DEET, Picaridin, or Lemon Eucalyptus Oil are effective.
